Why isn't bitcoind listening on its rpc port?

2

I run

sudo netstat --ip -lpa | grep bitcoin


After starting the bitcoin daemon and all I get is the 8333 port and the connections with other peers.

But when I do the same but with | grep namecoin, I get the rpc port and everything else.

I'm not being able to make poolserverj to work because of that. Since it's not listening, poolserverj gives me a 404 response on the rpc port.

My bitcoin.conf:

server=1
rpcuser=xxx
rpcport=8332
rpcallowip=*
gen=0


Hmm, maybe you should look for bitcoind - the Bitcoin server? – ThePiachu – 2012-10-03T12:22:27.290

I'm using the headless version, and grep filters bitcoind with or without the "d". – rafael.js – 2012-10-03T17:44:13.683

I commented "rpcallowip=*" and now it's working. Does anyone know why? – rafael.js – 2012-10-18T00:44:06.570

Have you been able to reproduce this problem with any recent versions? Looking through the code, I can't seem to find a problem in the code where the wildcard is tested.
